Kentucky Greg's Hickory Pit

Reviewed By 3000calories - Saratoga Springs, New York

Went with a couple business colleagues during the height of lunch hour and had no trouble finding a table, despite a decent crowd, in a seat yourself environment. Service was quick and friendly (though slightly uninformed as the server was unable to say what type of smoker / wood was used). I ordered a beef brisket sandwich with a side of fried okra. The meat was fantastic, juicy and smoky. The BBQ sauce was limited and flavorful with more available on the table if desired. The bread of the sandwich did not overwhelm the meat. The fried okra was good, but nothing special. Also had ice tea unsweetened to drink, again nothing special about that. Price was reasonable.

There is not one negative thought that comes to mind when describing Russell’s. From being greeted by the impeccably dressed owner, decor, ambiance, service and of course...the food! Absolutely delicious appetizers and my favorite steak russell. Good cocktails and dinner for two is a great option for a more manageable portion size for a good price. Highly recommended.

After looking at restaurant reviews near our hotel we decided on Teton Kitchen.
We arrived at 6:00 to an already busy restaurant.
We sat at the bar and shared ribs, maki roll & a pork noodle dish.....all which were fresh & delicious.
Service was attentive and very friendly.
We would definitely return.

Griffon GastroPub

Reviewed By jbmm1283 - Buffalo, New York

Stopped by the Griffon Gastro Pub for a business function. It checked all the right boxes. It was a nice casual atmosphere with fantastic food. They have an extensive beer selection; dozens of draft selections. Unfortunately after one pint of a beer I really liked, they let me know they ran out. That was the only negative for the night. I had the chicken and waffle sandwich which was a great choice. The chicken was perfectly cooked and the jalapeño slaw with the maple mayo was a perfect compliment. The waffle was also perfect, super fluffy and crisp on the outside. I substituted for the hand dipped onion rings which were also very good. The colleagues I was there with also thoroughly enjoyed their food as well. This is definitely a place to visit.

Duff's Famous Wings

Less than 2 miles from Buffalo (BUF) Airport. Barbecue doesn't describe it best, but I couldn't find chicken in the type cuisine. I'ts there at 550 Dick Rd, Depew. I was there. Best chicken wings, ever.

Reviewed By branimal - concord, nc

Came to this place with 3 other guys. We loved it. The wings were awesome and the service was excellent. We came back 2 more times, on our weekend trip to see the Buffalo Bills play. The medium is definitely hot.. be careful. The mild is not spicy.
I ordered their 20 wing, bowl of fries, and small pitcher of beer.. I believe the value was excellent. Could not finish all 20 wings.. they actually give you more than 20.. but not sure if that was by mistake or not.. Either way.. great deal.

Break'n Eggs Creperie

Reviewed By DenyseAlbany_NY - Albany, NY

So disappointed that after waiting 45 minutes and being so excited over the crepes menu our waitress was rude. Ordered special of corned beef hash and immediately asked for it to be taken back when it arrived as it was 90% potatoes with a sprinkle of corn beef thru out loads of grease. She snapped that that’s what corn beef is. When she didn’t like the tip i presented (10%) she told another waitress i was rude which my 11 yr old daughter heard and was saddened. When you 11 yr old says “let’s get out of here the spirit isn’t nice” that says it all.

Mr. Bill's Restaurant and Bar

Reviewed By FrankF14304 - Niagara Falls, New York

Meals are very good, not exceptional, but tasty and large portions. Monday special was flank steak with soup or salad. No problem substituting veggies for potato. Steak was cooked as ordered and seasoned nicely.
The club sandwich was huge. Only 1/4 was eaten, the rest boxed for the next day or two.
Waitress was very attentive and the owner stopped at the table to check up.
Overall very good meal with very economical prices.

We offer hotel and dinner packages that let you experience the best of both worlds. Remember you can make any day a Salvatore's Day.

Reviewed By Diwski - Hamilton, Canada

We discovered Salvatore’s on our first wedding Anniversary and fell in love. It is our FAVOURITE restaurant. It has that old gangster movie feel to it. It is not modern. Christmas time is definitely our favourite time to visit to see all the amazing decorations. The addition of the attached hotel is great and that was our first stay there. We usually do the dinner and hotel package but stayed at the Garden palace which is starting to show its age. The service is outstanding. The food incredible and portions are perfect. Price point is a little on the expensive side but you pay for the ambiance and just the whole overall experience. Love to see the same servers year after year. It must means they treat their employees well. White glove service by waiter in Tuxedo. There is always a photo op in the back with a beautiful backdrop. We will return. Can’t wait.

Charlie the Butcher's Kitchen

As our name suggests, Charlie's grandfather started the business as an actual butcher shop in downtown Buffalo in 1915. Three generations later, Charlie The Butcher took the roasts out of the butcher case, slow roasts them, carves them with the skill of a surgeon (or butcher) and has perfected Buffalo's Famous Beef on Weck Sandwich.

Reviewed By vox69nn - Medina, Ohio

We often take a long drive and back from our home near Cleveland to relatives in far-eastern New York (near Glens Falls). Always looking for alternatives to the service plazas on the Thruway. Charlie the Butcher's was an easy on and off I-90 near Buffalo...MoreFellow "Buffalonians" would argue that all of Buffalo is like that! Thanks for the wonderful review. We hope to see you again soon.

Duffs

Reviewed By LifeIsAGift28 - Toronto, Canada

Went there on Saturday for lunch and the place was packed. Maybe because it was not too far from the University, and this was a popular place for students. Luckily one table cleared and we got seated. The servers wore T-shirts which says: The Medium is HOT, and the Hot is very HOT !! We ordered a Medium, and yes indeed, even Medium is quite hot. I can't imagine how the Suicide would be like.

The wings were great, but there was not that many different choices of sauce. Just the Buffalo with different grades of hotness and Barbecue. More choices of sauce would be welcome. Anyway, a great place for wings.
